"So many different high schools came together and I was truly touched. Emotionally, I laughed, I cried. I was blown away by some of the creativity. There were so many different variations and I appreciated all of them. There were a lot of finalists and I really loved that everybody just had that school spirit still," Perry said today on "GMA." "We live in a time where I think where we are really distracted. ... We can be someone else, on our phones ...Everyone came together and just made fantastic videos. School spirit still lives."
Perry tweeted about the event all morning and posted a selfie after the show with the crowd.
